Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, explore the world behind art at Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis, and get lost in a book at Museu Serralves.
